Challenges, challenges. I do, so, love challenges. :) Today, I went in search of a challenge or two in which to participate. And, guess what!! I found some! :)

This card was made for 4 challenges -
Sweet Sketch Wednesday
Critter Sketch Challenge Blog
Stamping Sisters In Christ
Cute Card Thursday

For the Sweet Sketch challenge, we needed to use the sketch of the week. What a fun one!!!!

For the Critter Sketch Challenge Blog, we could only use pink, black, and green. Not used to using those colors, so this was quite a challenge for me.

The Stamping Sisters In Christ challenge was to use two of everything. On my project, there are two sets of crystals, two pink layers, two green layers, and two ribbon treatments.

Cute Card Thursday wanted us to use trees or leaves on our project. The poinsettia is actually a flower of leaves, and I thought this was a great stamp to use for this challenge.

Card Recipe :
stamps - Poinsettia Joy
paper - sweet cheeks, spring leaf, spruce needle, dp, white
ink - black, pink
copics - R81, R83, R85, G94, G99, W1, W5, W7
accessories - flourish dies, Cuttlebug, folder, crystals, ribbon, sewing machine

It was fun to chase challenges today I had the opportunity. I hope you take the time to create with some challenges, too.

Another post coming tomorrow with another challenge.

Have a beautiful Monday evening and a great, big, beautiful tomorrow!
